I was wondering if there is any possible way tar the child (14) could chose where she lives (not being one of the family members.) this is my case: my mother has never been a terrific mom. She has abused me verbally (called me easy, said o needed help ext.) physically (has pulled my hair, threw me on the couch, threw her phone at mebehich left s mark, and gripped me up which has left red marks as well.) and emotionally (I've been grounded to my room with no ways of contact with anyone for two months, lost many friends, and felt alone in result I have ended up resorting to cutting before) I have heard that I nearly died when I was a baby due to her not caring for me right and have heard about her abusing my brother harshly (physically hitting) cps has been called 3 tomes on my mom but they have never had evidence behind it. My dad has many physiological problems and many fincial as well. Him and his girlfriend have abused me mentally in the past and he has abuse charges on him from in the past with his ex wife (not sure if charges were dropped.) any help please?

contact your case worker, your school counselor, or child advocacy, or write a letter to the current child welfare judge.

I recently went to my school consler and told about the physical abuse from my mom but Not everything else. Cps got called and came to ask questions ext. But they just dismissed it since I had no current marks.

Do you have any relatives you could go to? Or someone at your school that could help you solve this?

You could look into emancipation and foster care. I think you should definately consult someone though, just ask what they think and have them help you through it. I'm in the process of my mom getting full custody so I have empathy. Hope this helped!

I don't know about all the states, but in Montana (and others) you can't emancipate until you are 16 and you have to show proof that you can provide for yourself (have to have held a job for a certain amount of time, etc)

You could move in with someone who is not a relative if a parent(s) approves or if they were seen as unfit to care for a child then someone could adopt you. If you move in with someone without their approval than they could call the police and say your a runaway.

No, as a minor you can not decide where to live. Sometimes if it is a custody case, being decided by a judge.

I agree the authorities need to take action, before something horrible happens.

Like bochola said, contact a trusted teacher, school counselor, or other adult. Since you are a minor you will need someone to advocate for you. The more people you can get to listen, the more child services will be forced to do something to help you.
